3. Organization! Organization! Organization! Learn now how to organize your room, your notebook, your folders, and your locker! This is guaranteed to help you be successful!
4. Homework! Do you have any? Is it completed? You can expect a couple of hours of homework a night which means that time management is essential for success. You can do it!
5. Know when to wake up! As a high school student, your day will start at 7:50. Start training yourself to wake up early enough to arrive to school on time! A couple of things to do the night before: lay your clothes out, pack your backpack and leave it by the front door.
